Mercy took over management of the center in April. It had been by the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. The move should mean the end of long waiting lists at the center, officials said.

The new site will have nearly double the space, with room for about 176 patients. If Mercy's state certificate of need, which is required by law, is approved by early December, construction will start 30 days later, Pastura said.

Tom Dennemann, pastor of St. Elizabeth. "He is a high-energy person, which enables him to run between two campuses which are five miles apart." "What 1 do is split my day," Renner said. "I go to Seton from say eight to twelve and come down (to St. Andrew) from twelve to four." Renner said his goal is to unify the curriculums of the two schools. "As far as I was concerned it was more or less making a whole new school," he said. Combination of strengths The idea, he said, is to combine the strengths of each school rather than have them working in competition, he said. "We're able to share music teachers and P.E. (physical education) teachers. And we're able to share resources such as computers." parish in the last four years. And it continues to grow," Dennemann said. There are about 300 students at St. Elizabeth and about 125 at St. Andrew. After studying the problem for about a year, the pastors decided to combine the schools under one administration. "Now we have one school board and we can make decisions for the (all) eight grades," Wagner said. The new eight-member school board has three representatives from each school and the pastors of both ; churches. J( By working together, St. Andrew can benefit from gaining access to a larger school and St. Elizabeth can benefit from the financial assistance St. Andrew can provide, Wagner said. ' Each parish has fewer grades than the average elementary school. Most of the students from St. Elizabeth continued their education at St. Andrew. But because the schools were run by different parishes,, different school boards and different principals, the transition from one school to the other was not always a smooth, pne for the children. Enrollment curve up V "Sometimes we had trouble malting our curriculum come together just perfectly," Wagner said. ',. Another problem facing the two par- ishes was growth. While St. Andrew1 has seen little population growth in ' recent years, St. Elizabeth "is exploding," Wagner said.
